DCD Review Team Meetings


Due to a significant influx of permit applications, responses to requests 
for staff review meetings may take longer than normal.


DCD REVIEW TEAM MEETINGS
Comprised of planners, engineering tech analysts, permit technicians, and various DCD subject matter experts, the DCD Review Team, evaluates permit applications and permit document submittals. 

As detailed below, these team members are also available via lobby visits, staff consultations, hourly meetings, and pre-application meetings. They provide general land use, building construction, stormwater mitigation, environmental and critical area information.

PAID MEETING OPTIONS

Staff Consultation - A by-appointment, 30-minute consultation meeting with a cross-functional mix of DCD Review Team members to help you identify potential requirements for developing a single residential parcel. Review Team members provide general advice on your proposed project and possible requirements. A bulleted list of comments shared during the meeting is noted and provided to the applicant. Examples of projects for this meeting type include: development of a vacant residential parcel with a single-family residence or duplex, an accessory structure or outbuilding on a residential parcel, or an attached/detached accessory dwelling unit.

Hourly Meeting
 - A by-appointment meeting to focus on a specific area of Kitsap County Code or project conditions. You select which DCD Review Team disciplines will attend and they will research your questions or project in advance. Each staff charges time by the quarter hour. Meeting notes are taken by the applicant. Examples of projects for this meeting type include: development of a multi-family dwelling unit(s), a commercial/industrial development, other complex projects, or residential projects.

Pre-Application Meeting - A by-appointment meeting with DCD Review Team members to provide a detailed analysis of your proposed project or issue. Review Team Members will review the proposed project (including before the meeting), and a detailed meeting summary letter is provided to the customer soon after the meeting. 


 A request for either of these three options requires payment to be made along with the request.
